All my life, I have found a deep sense of satisfaction in listening to and creating my own music. There is something that music stirs up inside of me, a sort of wonder that I can trace back to my earliest days, to a time before anything else seemed to matter. When things were great, music was there, just as it was when things were not so great, the reliable balancing force that I could always turn to. Recently, I decided to make a good at producing my own album, which I will release independently.
A singer-songwriter, I view this album as the next big step in my music career. While I am confident that my skills are ready for a bigger stage, I am also aware just how costly an effort like this is sure to be. That is why I am turning to you, friends.
My goal through this campaign is to raise $50,000, which I will combine with the money that I have already put aside in order to cover the costs of marketing/PR, booking agent fees, radio tour fees, engineering fees, musician fees, studio fees, mixing/mastering fees, album artwork, CD production, distribution, licensing, legal fees, and music video production. I intend to release the album in February 2020 if everything goes according to plan, and to say thanks to all my contributors, I am offering early-edition and signed copies of the album exclusively through this campaign.
